LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Muhammad Zubair hit back at Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday for comparing Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar to former Pakistan cricketer Wasim Akram, terming it an insult to the swing legend.
The premier has previously drawn comparisons between the Punjab chief minister and the former cricketer, saying that, as the captain of Pakistan cricket team, he selected players who went on to become superstars like Akram and Inzamam-ul-Haq, and that his decision to select Buzdar is no different.
Ridiculing the comparison, Zubair said it was an insult to the former Pakistan cricket star.
Speaking to the media outside Kot Lakhpat prison in Lahore, the former Sindh governor said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf is playing a very dangerous game in Sindh. “These types of steps will have a dangerous result. Their leader is telling them to imprison Murad Ali Shah,” he said.
“Those who said we will create 10 million jobs are in the minus nowadays. Whatever performance is there it is of the entire team. If the captain is fake, then what can we expect from the team,” the PML-N leader remarked.
